The honour od Jagadguru goes to two -  Sri Krishna and Adi Shankaracharya ! Both pronounced philosophy of higher order for the mankind. While Sri Krishna offered Gita, Adi Shannkaracharya added Adwaitya to human knowledge !
My respect goes to Pundit Nityananda babu  for timely advising me to make d-tour from Guruvayur to Kochin to Kalladi the place Adi Shankaracharya born. Beautiful place with fervour of serenity and spirituality for the boy born there to enlighten and integrate India with his philosophy. So nice the place is preserved with its genuinity.
Wonder Kaladi inspires our Sri Mandira priests and administrators !!!

Rituals are beautiful remembrance of past and its beauty in living with life. At times, some rituals become baggage of time even. This raises questions on continuance of rituals. Throwing away all rituals is also at the same time will make life monotonous. 

A balanced reasoning on continuation of rituals is addressed in this column and at the same time the column laments on the sad incident on trampling away a beautiful auspicious ritual of Brahma Paribartan at Sri Mandira Puri. I was thinking that while standing in a queue with traditional dress for darshan at Guruvayur Temple, Kerala.
